It is unsettling how left-wing professors at universities, especially those that are supported with taxpayer funds, feel like their position gives them the right to air their most ridiculous views on important subjects that should be treated with respect.
Thankfully, one such professor at the University of Delaware just got fired for nasty, off-base comments she made about American citizen Otto Warmbier, who recently died from neurological trauma it is assumed he received while a prisoner in North Korea.
Wrote now-fired anthropology professor Katherine Dettwyler on her Facebook page, “Is it wrong of me to think that Otto Warmbier got exactly what he deserved? He went to North Korea, for fuck’s sake, and then acted like a spoiled, naive, arrogant, US college student who had never had to face the consequences of his actions.”
Added ex-professor Dettwyler in the comments section of the National Review, “Otto is typical of the mindset of a lot of the young, white, rich, clueles [sic] males who come into my classes. These are the same kids who cry about their grades, because they didn’t think they’d really have to read and study the material to get a good grade. They simple deserve a good grade for being who they are. Or instead of crying, they bluster and threaten their female professors.”
Announced the college, “The University of Delaware has announced that Katherine Dettwyler, who last taught in the spring as an adjunct faculty member, will not be rehired to teach at the University in the future.” Do you think this extremist got what she deserved?
